The rumen bacterial composition of both preruminant dairy calves and cows and beef steers was surveyed using pyrosequencing of the 16S rRNA gene. Sequences were analyzed using taxonomy-dependent and -independent clustering methods. The core rumen microbiome, regardless of the rumen developmental status or breeds, consisted of 8 phyla, 11 classes, 15… CONTINUE READING
